Snow Showers On Tap Tuesday Afternoon; Light Snow Chance On Wednesday

After some light rain, some wet snow early this morning(amounting to just a trace), and a low of 33 at Philly International we reached a high of 40 just before 4pm under plenty of sunshine.

Overnight it will be partly cloudy with a disturbance to the north(maybe a few flakes north and west) and lows in the lower 20s. Tuesday will start off sunny, but then clouds quickly increase in advance of a short wave that will provide some snow showers in the afternoon as highs approach the freezing mark. I feel at worst maybe an inch of snow will fall in a heavier shower, but otherwise it's just water cooler talk at how we all dislike this cold and snowy winter season.

Come Wednesday an area of low pressure slides along the Tennessee River Valley and will skirt by to the south and east as it pushes offshore; there may be a light snowfall accumulation(1-2") during the day, but with temperatures right around the freezing mark again it would be a heavy wet snow and primarily stick to colder surfaces. Behind that system it remains cold for Thursday with highs in the middle 30s and a short wave to the north providing clouds in the afternoon(albeit we shall stay dry).

We stay in the lower to middle 30s heading into the weekend with yet another system passing through early Saturday morning with a chance of light snow(an inch or two); so all in all this week is cold with light snowfall chances......NO BIG STORMS!
